I greet The Indwelling Divine Hugger.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Hugging. I went on a walk; it’s such a beautiful day. Spring is here, and doesn’t know anything about dis-ease. Thanks to our Father the trees and plants are allowed to be close. What I was about to do, I wanted to make sure no one in nearby, I feared their judgment. Some have a hard time tolerating the likes of me. I picked out two healthy trees that were six feet from the street. I gave each one a big hug. I ask our Father to bless us, and I told the trees that I loved them. I hope it was as good for the trees as it was for me. I picked out a young wild flower and pretended it was an A.A. newcomer. I shook hands and pat them on the back. I said welcome and keep coming back; it works it really does. I will be so happy when this lock-down is over. I need to get better at zoom hugging. I really suck at it. Social distance leaves a lot to be desired. I’m choosing to practice more spiritual intimacy with our Father. I am keeping my office open for small meetings and one-on-one sharing. For that I am so deeply grateful. We can use this down-time to do the Traditions and Steps.
